Recent pizzas: Eatery A, Sonny's Pizza Bistro, NYC Pizza Cafe.

UPDATE: NYC Pizza Cafe closed at the end of 2016.

Pizza No. 1 at Eatery A, at 2932 Ingersoll Ave., with mortadella, pistachio pesto, watercress, and olive oil. A surprising hint of cinnamon entices.

Pizza No. 11 at Eatery A with Italian sausage, braised fennel, mushroom, and a moist, flavorful red sauce. Delicious!

The focaccia-like crust makes me swear this was made by South Union Bakery, the definite source of fine focaccia in these parts. A decent amount of char on the bottom from the wood-fired oven adds to the overall flavor.

A view of downtown Saylorville from Sonny's Pizza Bistro, at 6594 N.W. Sixth Drive, was soon to be eclipsed by a view of the 12-inch pizza I ordered, one half with meatball and roasted red bell pepper, the other with sausage and mushroom. The crust is seriously crisp and sturdy. Center 'honeypot' slices are softened under the plentiful red sauce, but remain chewy.

Decent-sized chunks of tender meatball pairs well with sweet roasted red bell pepper.

The fennel-laden housemade Italian sausage is springy and zesty, meaty mushroom compliments.

It had been a long time since I last visited NYC Pizza Cafe at 6305 Mills Civic Parkway [see blog post]. On this visit I tried a 12-inch Supreme with Italian sausage, bacon, mushroom, green pepper, onion, and at my server's suggestion, added pepperoni to the build. There was no shortage of bacon on this pizza. The vegetables had an appealing crunch, and the crust was delightfully thin and crunchy.
